Canandaigua VA Medical Center
E-Donate Is Simple, Speedy, Safe
E-Donate, a new online donation option, provides community members who wish to give back to Veterans at a VA medical center a simple and safe way to pledge their support to the account of their choice.
“We’ve known for years that our citizens want to show their support to the service members who defended their freedoms,” said Medical Center Director Craig Howard. “While not everyone will have the time to volunteer, now anyone can take five minutes online to thank Veterans in a number of ways.”
The E-Donate option allows donors to select from a number of accounts at the medical center they wish to donate to. One hundred percent of their donations go to the accounts they select and the Veteran patients they are choosing to support.
“Donated money at our medical center goes toward things like recreation activities for Veterans. It gives our patients a chance to enjoy themselves on group outings.” said Voluntary Services Manager Robin Johnson. “People would be amazed if they could see how far their dollar goes toward making a difference in the lives of the people who dedicated themselves to us first.”
Donors can find the E-Donate button on Canandaigua VA’s home page. Donations can be made by credit or debit card. The actual donation is made through a secure site at the U.S. Department of Treasury’s www.pay.gov. A minimum of $5 is required for online donation.
